What to see and do in Wodonga
ON the Victorian side of the Victoria/New South Wales border, Wodonga is a growing city and home to universities, art and a manmade lake.
With a new streetscape between Wodonga Plaza and High Street incorporating the ‘Station 73’ Precinct there is much to explore with a growing gallery of art alongside the natural landscape.
Meander along Sesame Lane or past the side of the Medical Centre in Elgin Boulevard and you will find some beautiful art adorning the buildings.
If you’re travelling with small children, you might want to enact a game of ‘I Spy’ for the wombats and echidnas.
There is even a horse in Richardson Park that can provide an excellent photo opportunity and can be climbed by the young or young at heart.
GIGS Art Gallery, The Cube and Hothouse Theatre keep the art and culture theme going and offer shows, concerts, community performances and film screenings.
Lake Hume is a popular destination all year round with boating, fishing, camping and sightseeing options.
Golden perch, Murray cod, rainbow and brown trout, redfin and carp can all be found in the man-made lake and are the perch and trout are stocked annually by Fisheries Victoria.
Lake Hume is designated as Victorian waters for licensing and fishery purposes so if you intend to drop a line, you must have a current Victorian fishing licence.
So visit Wodonga today and ‘see what you can see’.
